Our food was excellent! We ordered different things and share in order to try different things. Everything is hand battered and made to order. Casual country setting was perfect for us.

Food is OK. They are overpriced to the point I don't see how they have been in business this long. I guess it's us local folks that just don't want to go into town.

My husband and I went Friday night to have a bite as we were both too tired to cook. I had fried shrimp and my husband had the shrimp and oyster plate. Very good and the service was great.

Waiter was really nice & food was delicious! Love the onion rings with the Cajun ketchup! Coconut cake is incredible! I got fish sandwich & fries & it was really good! It is clean & we just love eating there when we come to town.

Very rude owners! beware. there was even a facebook page started up because of the large # of people that had bad experience with the rudeness of the owners.

No, it has been the Cheniere Shack (sounds like Chinny) for as long as I have known it. I have lived here all my life.
